| January 10, 2020 | 0 Comments

A prayer service for peace in the wake of the U.S. targeted killing of an Iranian general is planned for Jan. 11 near St. Catherine University in St. Paul.

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are organizing the 6:30 p.m. service, which will be held at the sisters’ Our Lady of Presentation Chapel at 1890 Randolph Ave.

Major General Qasem Soleimani of Iran was killed in a U.S. drone strike Jan. 3.

President Trump said the general was plotting imminent attacks against Americans; some in Congress questioned that decision. Iran’s response included attacks but no casualties on two U.S. bases in Iraq.
